The play was an instant success, and Giuseppe Verdi immediately set about putting the story to music. The title character is Marguerite Gautier, who is based on Marie Duplessis , the real-life lover of author Dumas, fils.

Set in midth-century France, the novel tells the tragic love story between fictional characters Marguerite Gautier, a demimondaine or courtesan suffering from consumption , and Armand Duval, a young bourgeois. Armand falls in love with Marguerite and ultimately becomes her lover.

He convinces her to leave her life as a courtesan and to live with him in the countryside. This idyllic existence is interrupted by Armand's father, who, concerned with the scandal created by the illicit relationship, and fearful that it will destroy Armand's sister's chances of marriage, convinces Marguerite to leave. Until Marguerite's death, Armand believes that she left him for another man.

Marguerite's death is described as an unending agony, during which Marguerite, abandoned by everyone, regrets what might have been. The story is narrated after Marguerite's death by two men, Armand and an unnamed frame narrator. Some scholars believe that both the fictional Marguerite's illness and real life Duplessis's publicized cause of death, "consumption", was a 19th-century euphemism for syphilis [2] , as opposed to the more common meaning of tuberculosis.

Dumas, fils , is careful to paint a favourable portrait of Marguerite, who despite her past is rendered virtuous by her love for Armand, and the suffering of the two lovers, whose love is shattered by the need to conform to the morals of the times, is rendered touchingly.

The novel is also marked by the description of Parisian life during the 19th century and the fragile world of the courtesan. Doche is not my interpreter, she is my collaborator'.

In , Jean Davenport starred in the first United States production of the play, a sanitized version that changed the name of the leading character to Camille—a practice adopted by most American actresses playing the role. Bernhardt quickly became associated with the role after starring in Camellias in Paris, London, and several Broadway revivals, plus the film. In Scribner's Monthly reported that "not one other play by Dumas, fils has been received with favor out of France".

The success of the play inspired Giuseppe Verdi to put the story to music. In addition to the Camille films, the story has been the adapted into numerous other screen versions:. Zeffirelli first approached Hussey about starring in the film a few weeks after the premiere of Romeo and Juliet After the tour, Zeffirelli had trouble finding finances and a studio for the project.

In , Zeffirelli directed the film, Brother Sun Sister Moon , which failed to live up to the success of Romeo and Juliet , and prevented him from finding a studio to pick his proposal for Camille. Hussey, believing that the film was off, starred in Summertime Killer and Lost Horizon , and had her first child in February of Zeffirelli tried one last time to get the film picked up in late , but this time without Hussey.

Liza and I would often talk about work, and I had told her how excited I was to play Marguerite Gautier. How it was the role of a lifetime, and how Franco would bring it to life. I had said that he was a genius and I loved him and that he was adapting the work with me in mind. It was like I was handing it to her, the way I described it.

I felt betrayed. But Liza? How could she go behind my back like that? Olivia would later rekindle her relationship with Franco, and even reunited with him for the film Jesus Of Nazareth a few years later. It was big of her, but I found myself being nasty, telling her that Franco must be thinking of doing the film as a comedy if he were willing to cast her in the role.

It was a terrible thing to say, and I felt awful afterward, but I was hurt and angry Liza and I did find our way back to being friends, although it was never quite the same. Amongst many adaptations, spin-offs and parodies, was Camille , "a travesty on La Dame aux Camellias by Charles Ludlam , staged first by his own Ridiculous Theatrical Company in , with Ludlam playing the lead in drag. It is also the inspiration for the musical Marguerite , [11] which places the story in German-occupied France.

The conflict here centres on the relative economic classes of the central characters. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see The Lady of the Camellias disambiguation.
